Yeah, like "all Negroes are stupid" or "all Jews are calculating bloodsucking bastards." Hyperbole my... (will finish the sentence after Lent.)

Please, note that the prophet which St Paul is refering to, was a Cretan himself. It's a different thing to make an exaggerated statement about one's own people (and automatically about oneself) and different to make it about some other group.

OK, end of offtopic. Wink

Well, maybe you are right. My apologies for an emotional and not very well thought-off knee-jerk reply.

No, I'm just relating a sad but unfortunate historical truth.  You can't pick on me for relating it.

Also, since all ethnic groups have vices as well as virtues, this means that all can be poked fun at gently if need be.  We are all human after all Cheesy.

Historical truth according to whom? If this is such a "Historical fact" as you say, I'm sure you can provide a source citing such information.

Furthermore, yes, we are "all human," so we should have compassion and mercy for one another. We should be forgiving of one another's sins; not pointing them out to one another.

Christ didn't tell us to take the plank out of our own eye to beat it over the head of our brother.
I think Robb's problem is that he doesn't know that God speaks Spanish.  Wink
Not since 589.
What Happened in 589?
LOL. Anyone else want to take that?

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.

and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;

I asked you; Sometimes I am amused by the stuff you write. So let her rip.

There is no more evident sign that anyone is a saint and of the number of the elect, than to see him leading a good life and at the same time a prey to desolation, suffering, and trials. - Saint Aloysius Gonzaga

Someone got it into their head to "improve" the Catholic Creed.
